In May 2023, in a two-part webinar, the Network explored different approaches to implementing a lung cancer screening programme and showcased its new implementation framework.
The first session provided insights from multiple countries. It included a panel discussion with leading experts who spoke on a range of important topics, including the need for strong governance, what approaches to take to promote quality and how to secure the participation of people at high risk of lung cancer
The second session consisted of a deep dive into the Network’s implementation framework, with an emphasis on how applying the framework to your own setting can facilitate a robust assessment of the key requirements for the implementation of an organised screening programme. This can help guide your planning and support policy engagement initiatives for lung cancer screening.
If you missed the event, you can also watch the recordings of both sessions on our YouTube channel.
Thank you to those of you who were able to join us and a particular thanks to our wonderful speakers!
